[Snort-devel] OS Memory usage: 32bits vs. 64bits

I am currently doing some tests with snort and I found out that snort
running on a 64bits OS seems to use on average TWICE the memory it uses on
the OS’s 32bits version (I’m using Ubuntu Karmic Koala).

I did my tests with and without host attribute tables, and with different
search-methods: lowmem, ac,…

Do somebody get the same results? I have trouble explaining it, any idea?

Regards
